The LYR Class 28 "Hughes", is a type of rebuilt 0-6-0 steam locomotive of the Lancashire and Yorkshire's Class 27 designed by Aspinall Locomotive Works in Great Britain of the UK.

They often operated short freight and passenger trains, and were occasionally used on branch lines or as switchers or shunters. They were eventually retired during 1950s.

The "Hughes" Class has added a Belpaire firebox and extended the footplate and sandbox as opposed to the original Class 27. This locomotive or engine, the first of the series from the Horwich works (March, 1912), was fitted with a Schmidt superheater.

Very few were built, and none are preserved. It was the inspiration for the Railway series character James the red engine. James, however, has a leading pony truck, making him a 2-6-0 locomotive instead of a 0-6-0. Because of this, he is noticeably longer in length than the Hughes. His wheel arches have also been heavily modified.
